all Fish Oils are Created Equal
The benefits of adding additional
Omega-3’s to your diet are well known. However, unless you’re taking
a high quality supplement, you may be better off not taking one at
all. In this case, what you don’t know could hurt your wallet and
The amount you pay for a bottle of fish oil can be deceptive. It’s
not how much a bottle costs, but rather the amount you pay for 1,000
mg of the health-promoting ingredients EPA and DHA contained in the
oil. If you look at our comparison, you’ll see that Sealogix
represents one of the best values on the market today. In addition,
you’ll also notice that Sealogix fish oils also contain sesame
lignans and astaxanthin, two key ingredients that enhance the
health-promoting qualities of fish oil.

- Frequently Asked Questions
What are Omega-3 fatty acids?
Omega-3’s belong to a group of fatty acids known as long-chain
polyunsaturated fatty acids. Because the body does not manufacture them,
Omega-3's are classified as "essential fatty acids" (EFA’s), as it is
essential they be obtained from food. There are three important Omega-3
fatty acids: alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA), and
docosahexaenoic acid (DHA). EPA and DHA are found in fish, while ALA is
found only in plant foods such as flaxseed meal. The body can convert ALA
into small amounts of EPA and DHA, but recent studies have indicated that
our bodies are somewhat inefficient in this conversion. Therefore, it is
necessary to supplement your diet with these nutrients in order to
significantly change your levels of Omega-3’s.
What is sesamin?
Naturally found in sesame seeds as lignans, sesamin comes from the 1%
solid portion of the kernel’s oil. Sesame and sesame lignans are
associated with health benefits in humans.
How much sesamin is in each
serving of Sealogix (120 capsules)?
Four capsules contains 68 mg of sesame extract, which is 60% sesamin.
Therefore, four capsules contains 40.8 mg of sesamin.
What do Omega-3
fatty acids do for the body?
The Omega-3’s EPA and DHA are recognized for their health benefits in all
life stages. They are important building blocks for every cell in your
body, which requires these crucial components to grow, develop and
maintain health.* These fatty acids are an integral part of cell membranes
and are precursors of several important cellular messengers.* Studies have
demonstrated that EPA is important for optimal brain function and
contributes to the reduction of cellular inflammation.* DHA has been
recognized for brain, visual and nervous system health and development.*
Additionally, these essential fatty acids work together to contribute to
good heart health.*
What is the richest source of Omega-3 fatty acids?
Fish oil is the richest source for eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and
docosahexaenoic acid (DHA). Cold-water fish, like anchovies, salmon and
sardines, are considered the best source for these essential fatty acids.
It is important to remember, that all omega-3's are not created equal. You
would need almost four tablespoons of flaxseed oil to get the same amount
of EPA and DHA found in one teaspoon of Sealogix! That's approximately ten
times as much flaxseed oil than fish oil.
Why should I take a fish oil
Changes in food preferences and the impact of modern food processing in
Western society have led to a significant decrease in average dietary
intake of Omega-3 fatty acids. As a result, most American diets contain
far more Omega-6’s than Omega-3’s. In fact, it is estimated that the
average American has between twenty to fifty times the amount of Omega-6’s
as they do Omega-3’s. Recent studies have indicated that this kind of
imbalance can set the stage for a host of health problems. To promote a
healthier fatty acid ratio, it is advisable to avoid Omega-6’s (which are
commonly found in fried foods, commercial baked goods and some
margarines), and eat more baked or broiled seafood and supplement the diet
with a high-quality fish oil like Sealogix.

Why does purity matter with regard
to fish oil?
Unfortunately, pollution has affected the water quality of all of our
oceans. The contaminants in our waters include toxins like mercury, PCB’s,
arsenic, lead and cadmium. Consequently, many fish now contain these
undesirable elements. That is why it is very important to choose a fish
oil that is molecularly distilled. Molecular distillation is a process
that concentrates and purifies the fish oil. It is also important to
select a fish oil product that is tested for concentration, toxicity and
safety by an independent third party. Supplementing your diet with an
ultra-refined fish oil like Sealogix allows you to safely get the
additional Omega-3 fatty acids you need.
I’ve researched many fish oil
